The Padres would probably be a slight underdog to the World Champion Phillies but with Peavy on the mound they will be the choice in baseball betting odds.
Baseball odds have shown that Peavy has won three straight starts after four losses. In his last outing Peavy allowed eight hits and four runs in 6 1/3 innings against Arizona but got the win in baseball odds. He did pitch with a bit of tendinitis in his right ankle but he doesn’t think it is an issue. "It's just bruised up a bit in the back of my ankle," Peavy said, “It's just a little bit of an ankle sprain, but you just have to work your way through it. It was good enough to go tonight. The boys picked me up. I'll be ready to go Monday or Tuesday against Philadelphia."
Baseball odds information shows that this is the second game of a three-game series between the two teams. Before this baseball odds series began the Phillies and Padres had split their last 20 meetings. The Phillies had won six of their last ten at San Diego as baseball betting odds results show. Last year the teams met for one series in San Diego and the Phillies took two of the three in baseball betting odds. Both of those wins were close decisions as Philadelphia won 2-1 and 1-0. The Padres win in baseball odds was an 8-3 blowout.
The Phillies have been a huge moneymaker on the road this season versus the baseball odds at the online sportsbook. In fact, Philadelphia has had the best road record versus the baseball odds in the Major Leagues for most of the season. The Phillies have been winning with an offense that is in the Top 5 in the league.
San Diego has been almost the exact opposite of the Phillies. The Padres have been excellent at home but struggled on the road as sports betting stats show. San Diego wins their games with pitching as they rank in the top half of the league while their offense, other than Adrian Gonzalez, has struggled.
Looking at the total we see that the over has surprisingly been the way to go in baseball odds when these two teams meet in San Diego. The over is 6-3-1 versus the baseball odds at the online sportsbook in the last 10 games between the two teams at Petco Park.
